A number of health experts have actually recommended adding trace amounts of lithium to the drinking water (regions with higher lithium in their water have lower rates of suicide and perhaps violent crime - although there could be other factors involved).

I find that even lower levels of lithium (i.e. 150mg) have a positive impact on my mood, especially if taken for a longer timeframe. Some psychiatrists have recommended lithium even in lithium-unresponsive patients, arguing that there may be longer term benefits that are not seen right away.

Lithium is used with lamotrigine all the time. I briefly used the two together, although lamotrigine wasn't agreeing with me at the time. I wish I had given lamotrigine a longer trial.
